"La Vega" in Los Angeles(Chile) (The Veggi)

Before to following with recipes I wanted sharing with all of you these pictures of our trip to Los Angeles, La Vega is a wonderful Store where you found all the summer beauties, veggis,flowers,fruits, some clothes, grains, and typical things of here.
Some picture was taken by Gerardo Dad and others from me. The dificult was choose what's pictures show.
Well enjoy.

Here you may see, hats (that many people use at the countryside) and others things to the kitchen.

Remember these lovely dishes? I use when I made Pastel de Choclo (Corn's pie) these are from Quinchamalí and the grey is black. are lovely. You may use at oven, and microwaves without problem.

These pictures are one of my favorites, lovely strawberries and blackberries, Los Angeles export a lot of berries, at this store we found too bluberries.
Gerardo take this lovely picture of this couple that sell grains, cereals beans and spices, many years in their store.

To the lef this man is so proud of his store.

Other picture of hats, stones to grind spices and spices.
